Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has told Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp “some of us have been operating at a very high level for many years – I’m not sure he can say the same”.
Klopp was critical of Ramos after Real’s Champions League win for a challenge on Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah that injured his shoulder.
Salah landed heavily on his shoulder midway through the first half against Real, leading to the PFA Player of the Year being substituted. He later needed surgery on the injury.
Many Liverpool supporters blamed Ramos for the clash, which went unpunished by the referee, and a petition was raised calling for Fifa and Uefa to punish the Spain international.
